Fleur Pellerin, born Kim Jong-suk in South Korea and adopted at the age of one, is the first French Cabinet member of Asian extractions.
Last night, she was named culture minister with a brief to overturn some of the policies of her combative predecessor, Aurélie Fillippetti.
Fleur is quite a fighter, a game for a challenge.
On TV, she went head to head with a popster. Watch.
